#AceWorldNews – OKLAHOMA (Norman) – September 30 – An Oklahoma man who had been suspended from his job was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder in the gruesome beheading of a co-worker, who was attacked from behind as the man sought revenge, a prosecutor said Tuesday.
Alton Nolen, 30, could face the death penalty for Thursday’s deadly attack on Colleen Hufford, 54, at the Vaughan Foods plant in Moore.

He also faces two assault charges.
The FBI also is investigating the attack, given Nolen’s interest in beheadings and a recent surge in Middle East violence.
“There was some sort of infatuation with be-headings.
It seemed to be related to his interest in killing someone that way,” Cleveland County Prosecutor Greg Mashburn said. “Other than that, it seemed to be related to his being suspended earlier in the day.”
